I know that many parents and teachers are not huge fans of fidget spinners, but I for one think they are awesome. They not only help students focus, but they also challenge them to use their creativity when it comes to creating their own version. In the past few months I have come across spinners that are made out of epoxy, melted crayons, zip ties, coins (glued together) and ones that are hand carved out of wood. I love that these students are spending that much time working with their hands AND not in front of a screen. I encourage students to bring them to class, show their peers and continue to create them out of any and all materials they can think of! Thank you to the students that allowed me to snap a pic of their creations so I could show them off!

In honor of the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor I will be displaying photographs and bios of Servicemen and Women that are family members of the students at South. If you would like to send in a photograph, or short bio, to add to our classroom display we would love to have it.
I think that it is important to recognize and honor those that have served our country both past and present and this is one small way we can do that in our classroom.
The students are very excited about this, and I know that they are looking forward to learning more about their Great Grandparents, Grandparents, Parents and other family members that have proudly served our country.
All photographs will be returned after Christmas break. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me. Thank you so much for your help with this.
